journal" poll. why do you think that the president is edging out mitt romney in these polls, when the economic recovery has been so slow? >> well, it's a fairly complicated answer, and a lot of it has to do with voter attitudes towards the economy, less so than voter attitudes toward president obama or mitt romney. in many ways, voters have gotten used to the idea of a poor economy, even a lackluster one. and they've kind of gotten used to it. a quarter of the people who said the country was headed in the wrong track are still supporting the president. so they've basically gotten used to the economy as the status quo. >> today in his weekly web address, lynn, the president blaming congress for not helping the economy. take a listen. >> last week, mortgage rates were at historic lows. but instead of helping more and more hard-working families take advantage of those rates, congress was away on break. instead of worrying about you, they'd already gone home to worry about their campaigns. >> lynn, is that a strategy that works? i mean, is there something to what he's arguing, regardi
saying the polls are weren't saying this when 75% of the republicans were against mitt romney in the primary, but they are now. >> eliot: he is starting to talk about his own record embracing the thing that most people said worked when he was governor which was his own health care bill. >> you know mitt romney is in trouble when he is taughting the positive things he did for people. i think he should have done it all along. he had this wedge issue and all he has to do is fall back on state's rights. all he had to do was say yes, the same program barack obama had. but it's about what states want not a nationwide mandate. if he had done that the gop would have respected him. >> eliot: he never showed that he had the force of character to stand up to anybody, and as a weak, ameba-like, spineless, and that's what turned the public against him. it is premature to do an autopsy, but this thing is not over. >> yes, it is. >> eliot: let's talk about todd akin. this guy keeps -- what is going on in missouri? >> he gets his butt whipped by a girl so he calls her unl
" poll has the president a full ten points ahead of romney in ohio. 53% to 43%. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. >> reporter: joe, even though a new poll shows the president with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the w begins next tuesday. now, today the president was again selling his policies and his record in a state he says has benefitted from the auto bailout. he talked about the thousands of jobs created but also hit china and went after his gop opponent. >> he's been talking tough on china. he says he's going to take the fight to them. he's going to go after these cheaters. and i've got to admit, that message is better than what he's actually done about this thing. it sounds better than talking about all the years he spent profiting from companies that sent our jobs to china. so when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see
governor romney from closing the gaps as we see in the polls as of today? >> good morning, alex. i think the obama team is confident but they're cautious. they're six weeks until election day. that's a lifetime when it comes to politics. folks have already started to turn out for early voting. we have a graphic of what we've seen so far. it shows that obama campaign supporters are actually leading right now in terms of voter turnout as compared to romney supporters. i've spoken with officials with the rnc, and they say this doesn't concern them. why? because typically democrats turn out for early voting in larger number than republicans. officials at the rnc tell me they're feeling incredibly confident right now when it comes to their ground game and voter outreach. they say this is going to translate into voter turnout between now and election day, so that is what in the words of one republican official allows him to stleep at night. we have a graphic of this breakdown. take a look. when you look at the numbers of 2012 compared to 2008, according to the rnc volunteers have made six time
in ohio. mitt romney's riding his campaign bus through ohio today. with the latest poll showing he needs to play catchup, romney's trying something new. cnn national political correspondent jim acosta is following the romney campaign. >> reporter: joe, mitt romney woke up today to more bad poll numbers here in ohio on the very day he is racing across the state with a new message that can be summed up as i can feel your pain too. across the critical battleground state of ohio, mitt romney has been a man on a mission to connect with voters. >> my heart aches for the people i've seen. >> reporter: the message of the day was not only that he can fix the economy, it's that he can feel it. >> there are so many in our country that are hurting right now. i want to help them. i know what it takes to get an economy going again and creating jobs. >> reporter: the straight from the heart appeal is echoed in a new ad that shows romney looking directly into the camera. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for the
have trouble connecting with mitt romney. >> polls consistently show you trailing and you're not popular in every state almost. more folks view you as unfavorable than favorable. why have you failed to connect with average americans? >> this is a campaign about a choice. as people watch the debates and look at our ads and hear our speeches and focus more and more on the path forward, i'm convinced they will conclude, as i have, that we can't afford four more years like the last four years. >> but that connection. how have you failed to make the connection? >> i'm pleased that we have a campaign that's take our message to the people across america and we're going to win. >> then again, there are a lot of reasons people have trouble connecting with mitt romney. and one of them is he doesn't understand monthly bills. that's my take on it. how do you understand the middle class? if you're in the middle class and if you're in a lower income than the middle class, are you worried about paying rent? worried about the car payment? got to make sure you pay all the bills that come u
the election because he is ahead in the polls. that's what they tell somebody. for mitt romney, you got to point out solution and point out the differences and especially in the debates and so that people will say what you stand for. they like president obama and they don't know as much about mitt romney. >> steve: they know one thing about president obama and that was brought to like by a friend of this program in the washington post. after our attack in the consulate in libya that the president was not attending the presidential briefings. he missed over half of them. surprise, every since the attack on the consulate, he went to sevenin a row which is a record for a number of months and lawmakers on capitol hill are disturbed by the statements put out by the ambassador to the united states or from the united states to the united nations susan rice and the others in the administration. it sounded lining it could not possibly be a terror attack and now we know it was. >> brian: senators are not giving up the details of the briefings. they have a problem with what they are hearing in pub
's check the hardball scoreboard. according to a "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll, obama leads romney by ten points. down in florida, the president's lead in the poll is nine, 53-44. the president looks to be opening up a big lead now, even in the face of this coordinated attack from the right. with me now are mother jones bureau chief and msnbc political contributor david corn and cynthia tucker. i want to talk about the good news for the obama team right now. cynthia, why do you think -- take a minute here -- despite this ugly campaign i've just pointed out in its pattern, its thread, what they are doing to try to delegitimize this president, why is he doing well in the toughest states? >> we've talked about what campaign has done wrong. we haven't spent as much time talking about the things obama has done right. obama has done a lot of things right. for one thing, he's just a stronger candidate. he relates to people better. he's more approachable. his favorability rates are higher, while romney has high unfavorability ratings. but obama actually has a set of principles he believes
campaign. a new poll shows president obama running ten points ahead of mitt romney in ohio, which is where abc news found mitt romney tonight and confronted him about the heavy words he dropped on 47% of the american people. >> about the people you said you couldn't convince to take greater responsibility. those are heavy words. >> what i'm talking about is a political process. i don't expect to get 100% of the vote. i hope to get 50-plus % and make sure i get the next president. >> that was his answer to the worst possible thing he could have said in his campaign, that was the best he could respond with. notice that no where in that answer does mitt romney attempt to actually repair the damage of his secretly recorded words. he simply says i'm just trying to get more than 50% of the vote. no word of explanation. no attempt of an apology to any of the american voters who have now heard him say this. >> 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. all right? there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe that
for romney. these polls -- one other thing. we know that they've middled with the polls for political purposes. when todd akin had 24 hours to decide whether to poll out, there was a phony poll produced by a major polling outfit, wasn't quinnipiac, showin on clr examination, they overexamined republicans by nine points. they're taking the same poll on romney/obama in missouri, they're oversampling democrats by nine points. that's using polls to score political points. >> sean: stay right there. we'll come back and have much more with arnol ann coulter. also coming up, arnold schwarzenegger talking about the affair that ruined his marriage. that's straight ahead. >> my wife was a fantastic friend, great advisor, great mother. my kids were fantastic. the thing that i cherished the most i destroyed by stupid things that i've done. >> we continue with ann coulter and david limbaugh. pat caddell, mainstream media is threatening our country's future. how did we get to be 36 days out of an election and a president who said shovel ready, shovels hitting the ground, and a net loss of jobs in t
election, new swing state polls show that the secretly recorded tape revealing mitt romney's inteion to abandon 37% of the american people if elected president is actually having the effect you would expect. romney's secretly recorded words are crushing his campaign. a new poll shows president obama inn tsadmi romney in ohio, which is where abc news found mitt romney tonight and confronted him about the heavy words he dropped on 47% of the american people. >> about the people yosaid you ose y words. ie to take >> what i'm talking about is a political process. i don't expect to get 100% of the vote. i hope to get 50-plus % and make sure i get the nt president. >> that was his answer to the worst possle thing he could have said in his cpaig tt was the best he could respond with. notice that no where in that answer does mitt romney attempt to actually repair the damage of his secretly recorded words. he simply says i'm just trying to get more than 50% of the vote. no word of explanation. no attempt of an apology to any w d saisricavote wave >> 47% of the people who will vote for the pre
counterattacks. one of them is flat out denighal. i think these polls understate romney's support. >> i don't believe the polls really matter until the debates begin. >> i think the first time we should look at the polls in all sincerity is after the debates. >> i just don't describe to him getting blown out. >> cenk: no way, it is not going to happen. such a republican thing to do, but who is the master of denying reality? here comes dick morris. >> he is at the moment in a very strong position. if the election were held today, romney would win by four or five points. i believe he would carry florida, ohio virginia, nevada. pennsylvania -- >> oh come on. >> pennsylvania, and i believe he would be competitive in michigan. >> cenk: you know you really have to be crazy for hannity to go come on. this is now being called pole trutherism. and i love what our own michael shure started. he started a hashtag called dick morris predictions. no one will even notice that the nfl is even using replacement reps. he is already catching on fire. i love it. another way that they go here wi
. and despite trailing the president as much as ten points in some polls, governor romney made this bold prediction. >> it is an honor to be here with you and to be here with these cadets and to be at this extraordinary place that so many presidents past have visited. and well, a president future is visiting today. >> and when i become president of the united states. >> i'm going to win pennsylvania and i'm going to become the next president of the united states. >> we'll be talking with our political journalists about all that in just a moment. today there's reaction and a rare reversal from u.s. intelligence official on what happened in libya. officials now admit they got it wrong. the director of national intelligence office says "we revised our initial assessment to reflect new information." and the intelligence community now believes it was a "deliberate and organized attack" which left the u.s. ambassador and three others dead. now members of congress from both parties are demanding answers. on the ground in benghazi, investigators can't even get to the scene. nbc's mike viqueira i
more bad news for mitt romney. the cbs poll not good news. although romney says the polls in ohio were wrong. >> we'll get into that. >> stephanie: don't spoil it all for me right off the bat. >> stephanie: just stop it. >> it is hard. >> stephanie: as you know, the laws of aeronautical engineering are wrong. you can roll a window down at 30,000 feet. >> stephanie: and say wee! stick your head out like a labrador. >> i get excited why the twitter gives me another romney gaffe. it makes my day every hour and a half or so. >> stephanie: just stop it. see? we just foreshadowed her news nuggets. here they are in their glory. >> that's a euphemism. but go ahead. >> stephanie: whatever. jacki schechner in the current news center. >> good morning everybody. if you're looking for a little more intention from president obama, you know what you have to do, beat ohio. he's got campaign events in bowling green state university and kent state university today marking his 29th visit to ohio since taking office. if
line. this is true across many polls. you might see a margin of 20 points for mitt romney. you might see a margin of 22 points but nowhere do you see the outside margins that he needs to win the election. given how obama is doing among minority voters, given how he appears to be holding his support, maybe then some, among white college graduate voters. so that's where we are now. of course, as we know these elections in which you step into united states are not oddly enough decided just by the popular vote. that would be a weird and silly thing to do. instead we have this electoral vote system, you know the story. that means that the election really comes down specifically to the outcomes in a number of different swing or battleground states. this is the 2012 battleground as we laid it out in our first paper and basically you have six days in kind of the rust belt midwest area. you have three states out of the southwest, you have three states in the new south, north carolina, virginia and florida. the six days in the midwest rust belt area are much more heavily white than these other
going on. the polls not looking good. mitt romney saying he's not paying attention to the polls. you're having a lot of his supporters saying, well, you don't pay any attention to the polls. i heard walter mondale say that the night before the election. a lot of desperation going on on the far right, but what's happening in the race? >> laser focus on the swing states. the candidates in virginia today, one of 30 states where early voting is already under way. it's a state president obama won in 2008 by more than six points. and where a polling average from real clear politics shows him right now at this moment up about 4.5 points. yesterday both candidates holding rallies in ohio, crisscrossing the state, sometimes almost running into each other they were so close campaigning. mitt romney tried to brush back suggestions his campaign is faltering there after that "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll showing him ten points down in ohio. >> i'm very pleased with some polls, less so with other polls. but frankly at this early stage, polls go up and down. i don't expect to get 100% of the
romney was against it. ffceoh cacmaking a hug >> let me get a look at the latest poll and bring in david. a new washington post poll has president obama out front in ohio and florida. inside the numbers we see how the president has hitome with ohio voters on understanding economic problems people are amatom 31 on w. connecting on their problems. 51 points in florida -- actually, 15. on handling taxes, president obama beats romney by a wide margin, 17 points in ohio. in florida it's closer, leads by one. atne by 1 in ohio, 15 in florida. what i understand, looking at the differential, florida has a lot of retired people, obviously. very sensitive. in a sense, ohio has people who can't afford to get down to florida in the wintertime. their social security, medire, and maybe if the lucky, some pension d savings. >>ou know, we've talked about this for months now. after the 2010 electi, obama sat down and thought about what his message is, his vision is, his strategy going into 20 1237 th whairo a in "showdown" and he's stuck to this with such devotion and passion, because he believes in it.
information. it indicates that the health care issue is hurting romney with seniors. a new reuters poll finds that romney is losing their support. before the democratic convention romney led among seniors by 20 points and now romney leads president obama by less than four points. that is a dramatic drop. >> it is a dramatic drop. and that's partly because of the additional of paul ryan. you can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig. paul ryan's program was the elimination of medicare. and i believe barack obama is going to get elected president of the united states because he's going to take florida and ohio and that's the death knell for any republican ticket. the bold person he picked was really badly cut into his margin with seniors. i think at the end of the day it's conceivable that obama will actually win the senior vote. >> howard dean and jonathan cohn. thank you for joining me tonight. >> thanks for having us. >> thanks. >>> coming up in the rewrite. the things that paul ryan just can't say anymore because he doesn't want to get in trouble with mitt. and we'll look into the most
political national poll of likely voters shows president obama leading mitt romney by 3 points. tonight nate silver fraufts that on november 6th president obama will within 309 votes. today paul ryan picked off the romney campaign's three day pus tour through ohio, where a new pole of ohio likely voters shows president obama leading by 5 points. no republican has won the presidency without winning ohio. mitt romney will join the ohio bus tour tomorrow. he and paul ryan will be then followed by the democratic national committee's own ohio bus tour which will stop in the same cities. the dnc's bus tour is called mitt romney writing off the middle class tour. joining me now from the dnc bus tour in columbus ohio, former ohio governor, ted strik land. and from new york, krystal ball. >> fewer americans are working today than when president obama took office. it doesn't have to be this way. if obama would stand up to china. obama had years to stand up to china. we can't afford four more. >> governor, your reaction to that romney ad? >> well, i mean, it's a joke. everyone knows that president obam
is going to talk down romney's chance of winning. they are going to show mr. obama way up in the polls, so republicans go why even bother voting. >> stephanie: there we go again. reporting the actual polls, karl. >> did you assume for a minute that you could use numbers without being accused of being a liberal, and this is what the republicans are doing. for the last couple of weeks it has been, look, the polls are really tight. and for a while they had a point there, the national polls were really tight. but we don't elect our president by the national polls. it is through the electoral college. >> stephanie: yeah. and the other number he apparently didn't want to mention is the fox news poll. which shows obama way ahead. >> that's where things get inconvenient. >> stephanie: yeah. he is at the point where he is approaching double digits in florida, ohio and virginia and the calculus said -- calculus from my right-wing friends is an advanced form of math -- the calculus said if romney didn't win florida he could not come up with the electorates to win at all. and now no
polls out this morning. they all show, when this question's asked, people don't think romney's going to win, even a lot of people who support him think the president's going to win. i think that's one of the main things, stand with the president and convince people yeah, he's got a chance. >> you hear more and more people talking about the first debate being critical and it is with all the early voting going on, with the advantage that the president's taking in a lot of swing states, even fox news polls showing him ahead. with all the early voting going on, with the spread being what it is in ohio, a "columbus dispatch" poll came out this weekend, i think it's a nine-point race according to the local paper there, he's got to do very well in this first debate, and i think he can do it. >> there is the possibility. he is a good debater. to politics in just a moment. first breaking news from afghanistan. local officials tell nbc news that three american troops are among the 14 people killed this morning in a suicide bombing. the taliban is claiming responsibility for the attack. it foll
in the polls after the paul ryan pick and the cotiasnt t romney campaign has stumbled repeatedly. yet mr. romney, who is losing by five or more points in iowa, colorado, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, florida and virginia, sees blue skies ahead. askehow he intended to turn his campaign ound, mr. romney esneturnaround.s," ,t and romney surrogates were out over the weekend blaming the liberal media for the campaign's troubles. the press didn't treat ronald reagan and george w. bush any less unfairly, and both men managed not onlyo win the presencyutge re-elected. mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducing his unforcedrrors and less on the fourth estate's political bias. ifhining about the liberal media was a winning strategy for republicans, newtingrich wou be t mi" well, and newt gingrich is a great example -- i don't mean to go back there -- a great example of the problem we're talking about here. because -- >> no. >> -- no, instead of stepping forward and separating himself from this candidate, he somehow, becausof his party -- at distraction.. >> it is. >> i'm talking about the p
at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates say in the economy is so important is the friday morning after the wednesday night debate, we'll get the latest unemployment report. if governor romney could turn in a strong debate performance and another tepid jobs report, there's a chance for this race to change after debate number one. >> if you're the obama campaign, you're looking at all these numbers in our brand-new poll. what's most encouraging to you? >> reporter: in scrubbing through the demographics, the regional numbers, here's one thing they will like at the obama campaign. among white voters nationally, the president gets 41%. governor romney gets 56%. governor romney's beating him by a big number, how is that good for president obama? given the president's support a
in in virginia as the polls increasingly favor the president and the calendar is mitt romney's nemesis. just six days until the first debate. 40 days until the election. the president stumps in virginia beach today while romney is in springfield. those swing state polls show mitt romney down. and his campaign is now reserved another $3.4 million in ad time in those crucial states, including $1.5 million for virginia. but it's ohio's numbers that are raising a lot of eyebrows today. the president hinted at the 47% video there that's been so devastate for his opponent. >> i have spent a lot of time in ohio, and i don't meet a lot of victories. i see a lot of hard work in ohio ans. >> "new york times" political analyst nate silver calculates that mitt romney's chance of winning ohio is 3.6%. as we've been tell you, no republican has won the white house without it. >>> despite the polls piling up against him mitt romney insists he can win. >> i believe in america, and i believe in you. i believe you're going to help me win ohio, i'll tell you that. all right. >> i want to bring in carl bernstein, co
to show some polls this morning that show just how horribly mitt romney's doing in ohio. you know what? i was saying last week there are 45 days. there aren't really 45 days left. they've got to turn this thing around or they lose. this is what jason riley wrote in "the wall street journal" yesterday. media blame game. this from a conservative publication, by the way, extreme right-wing trolls. "the wall street journal." just like "the wall street journal's" been warning mitt romney's campaign for a month now that he'd better do something or else he's going to lose. "since pulling even in the polls after the paul ryan pick and the gop convention last month, the romney campaign has stumbled repeatedly. yet mr. romney, who is losing by five or more points in iowa, colorado, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, florida and virginia, sees blue skies ahead. asked how he intended to turn his campaign around, mr. romney told "60 minutes," well, it doesn't need a turnaround. and romney surrogates were out over the weekend blaming the liberal media for the campaign's troubles. the press didn't treat ronald
in every campaign i've ever covered, the press will talk about process particularly polls. mitt romney, conservatives are waiting for him to be big in events, big in message, big in personality. it seems like right now the campaign is waiting for him to do that in the debates. >> mark, you know why they focus on process, because there's not substance to -- you know, it's funny, in 1988 facing a more hostile press george h.w. bush never once whined about process. you know why? because james baker told the press what they were going to be following. and he told the candidate what he was going to be doing. and every week the candidate did it. the message was unbelievable. but again, going on with charles krauthammer, for six months mitt has been matching obama small ball for small ball. a hit-and-run critique here. this is important. a hit-and-run critique here, a slogan of the week there. that's what we've been saying. sam stein, there is no over arching message, no reagan message, no thatcher message, no george h.w. bush message in 1988. it's small ball. you have a libyan embassy blow u
think north carolina is probably leaning to romney, despite some recent polls to the contrary. to be honest i think the three toss-ups where he has the best shot are florida, new hampshire, and particularly colorado. but in all of those other toss-upes, like wisconsin, nevada, ohio, virginia, you're seeing at least at this point a trend to obama. but, bob, i would just caution, the fundamentals of this election call for a close election. really think the election is going to tighten. ypresident obama is ahead, and probably has the best chance to win but this is going to be a tighter race than the polls show right now. >> schieffer: marsha blackburn, every poll seems to suggest that when it comes to women voters, mitt romney just doesn't do very well. i mean, he's up, i think now in ohio, is it 25 points among women. why do you think that is is it. >> i think there's a couple of things there. number one, i think most women are independent voters. and they're waiting to see some specifics. and as i've been in nevada and north carolina and virginia and different states, what i he
